One more thing.

When you press the main or sub rx button to
increase the tuning rate, then you swap to 
the other receiver, when you return, the XM
will still be in the step display, but the tuning
rate shown is the unaccelerated rate. 


Select the main rx.

Select a tuning rate of 100hz.

Press the main rx button. XM and 1k show in
the step display.

Press the sub rx button.

Now press the main rx button again.

XM still shows in the display, but the tuning
step is 100, not 1K.

But the radio will tune at the accelrated rate
of 1k steps.

The same works if you start with the sub rx
and swap back and forth.

I'll email Ten Tec about it.
